My first surgeversary!



Recommended Posts

Today marks 1 year since my surgery date and I haven't look back for one second.

It hasn't been easy, but it's the best decision I have ever made for myself.

I have lost a little over 33kg (around 72lb) which makes me just over half way there

If anyone is undecided - please take the plunge, it is so so so worth it.

I'm attaching a couple of photos so you can see the difference and how amazing I feel - The collage is a comparison shot taken exactly 12 months apart, and the second is a picture taken of me a friends wedding a couple of weeks ago...

Have an awesome weekend everyone.

Congratulations. You look great. I was a Dec. 2015 bander. I love the band.

I was banded end of Sept of 2015 and have had 2 fills .. First one was 2 weeks ago at 5cc and one this week at 1.5cc. I've not lost any weight since the surgery .. I did loose 15 lbs since starting the process in 2014. I honestly don't feel any different. I get thirsty while eating and its been a hard habit breaking. But I'm progressing.

What might be the issue?

Hi Shar362. I said a lot during the first 6-12 months after surgery that it was more the choices of food I made and not necessarily the band as to why I was losing weight as I wasn't feeling a whole lot of restriction until I got my Fluid levels right. Now they are at the right level and over the Christmas period I haven't made the wisest food choices and haven't shifted any weight in a few weeks. Maybe have a look at what you are consuming and if can be tweaked a little. Good luck..

Miss Meg - great job on your weight loss. Saturday 2/6 is my one year mark. I'll weigh on Saturday to get an official weight, but I've lost 79lbs. I felt like I should've lost more the first year considering the past few months has been gain/lose the same 5-10lbs. After reading your post, it makes me feel better because I feel like my first year was maybe more successful than I first thought. I started the 5 day pouch test today because I need a reset. I'm looking forward to seeing how this works for me. Day 1 went well and I even got a good workout in today.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
